While the holiday season might be the most wonderful time of the year, for some it is just another year of being single. For example, for many women it is very difficult spending New Year’s Eve alone without having someone on their side to cherish this moment and have that famous New Year’s kiss.
But this situation should not have an impact on you even though you are single. Being single should not be seen as the end of the world only because your sister, friend, or colleague has someone by their side.
If you are experiencing anxiety or lack of energies just because the holiday season will see you single, it is time you change the situation you have put yourself into. We are currently living in a difficult period with the pandemic and the only way to get through this is by being strong and having a healthy mind.
Here are some ways to prevent all the sadness around you, especially during this period.
Get rid of the negative thoughts
Although being single during the holiday season might be inevitable, it does not mean that you can’t entertain yourself. Start a therapy that includes meditation. Meditate everyday when you wake up in the morning, for at least 15-20 minutes. You will notice how this will affect your life, how it will remove negative thoughts and only bring positive energies.
While you are alone at home and negative thoughts are coming through your mind, stop them immediately. Start listening to music, begin dancing and think of all the positive things that you have in your life: friends, family, relatives who care about you and you have so many dreams that only need your determination to achieve them. Start thinking of the things you could change in your life and how to make it better.
If you feel that you need to put the record straight for the New Year coming up, we recommend writing a New Year’s resolution.
You can write about the things you want to achieve and change in your life. You can also write about the things you want to do as soon as we fight this pandemic.
Surround yourself with people
Quit being all alone at home and get in touch with people, whether in person or virtually. Stop refusing people’s invitation and go out with them anywhere they tell you or have a virtual cocktail hour or dinner. Who knows, you might find people that will absolutely change your life. Go to places you always wanted to see, but never got the chance.
Maybe you can start thinking about taking a long solo trip. There are many people out there who travel alone and make friends and see the most beautiful things in the world. Maybe this trip will be a discovery for you, and you will make a lot of friends, especially if you stay in hostels.
Most importantly, do not forget about your own values and what kind of a person you are. Only you can take care of yourself and make an impact in your life. One day, you will meet your soul mate, but until then, work hard to create a beautiful and peaceful life for yourself.
